I would use large blocks covered with a texture. The texture can
contain the windows and doors. This is assuming that you don't need a
functionally correct building.

You are correct. Use a block, and then apply a skin. I would suggest
using Blender (a 3D modeling app) to create ogre compatible meshes.

No books, just an online manual
Also, code examples are in the sources (gazebo/examples/)

As far as I know this is the only gazebo forum.
